is soon to be
offering a service called
which makes it possible to receive calls on a
line while it is in use by a modem. Unfortunately it
require Microsoft Netmeeting to operate, which means its
only available to Microsoft Windows users. I would really
like to use this service, but I usually dialup using linux
as that way other computers on my home network can make use
of the dialup connection. I wonder if anybody implemented
the netmeeting functionality under linux?
According to Linux
Netmeeting HOWTO Netmeeting uses the H.323 protocol for
video conferencing, the T.120 protocol for application and
file sharing, and LDAP for the directory service. There is
an opensource implementation of H.323 called OpenH323. OpenH323
development is coordinated by an Australian company.
